This is one of ihe healthiest movements in American theater, he declares, because here artistic plays, which would fail on Broadway, are made available to the public. Optimistic Outlook In general. Dr. Butler is very optimistic about the situation of 1he American 1 heater, however. He points out that American plays are now receiving international recognition. “Before 1920 none of our playwrights had achieved notice outside the U.S.. but todav such authors :i« Thornton Wilder, Arthur Miller and Tennessee Williams are gre^l hits in Europe as well as their own country.” In addition. Broadway musicals have made a big cont ribution to American theater, he Ijelieves. "They have changed creatlv from ihr old. plotless reviews, and we now have dramatic musicals such ts "Pal Joey” and "Oaklahoma.” “Pioblein” Fiiv* In drama Dr. Butler points out that *' f # * a \« u.dsv are tending to l>e more Hinierd studies of the problems, illustrating various lonn* of human nature which deviate from the norm. These problems, such as homosexuality. used to be taboo in the theater, but are now frequency done on stage." Because of this new trend in plays. Dr. Butler predicts that the director of the future will need a thorough knowledge of sociology, psychiatry and psychoanalysis now lhat "clinical psychology has reached Broadway.” Analyze Play The director must closely analyze ihe play so that he can get below the e\1 to the subtext. esjx‘cialyl with modern playwrights such as Tennessee Williams. In doing so, ihe director is u<ing much of the same technique that has now become known as the “method." This was pioneered by Constantin Stanislavski of the Moscow Art Theater. “Method” Disciples” Dr. Butler compares Stanislavski with Dewey in education because of the many disciples each has had to continue his doctrine. Today in dramatics, there are such well-known "method" protaganists as Lee Strasberg. of the New York Group Theater, director Elia Kazan, dramatic author Robert Lewis. Stella Adler and Sanford Meisner. Everyone uses ihe method whether he knows it or not. believes. You cannot an-play without it. Below Lines The method puis great emphasis on gelting below the lines and thus gives the actor many of the tools he needs. Dr. Butler says that he is using mnny method techniques in hi6- next production, “Medea,” which i*i be presented in Bo-vard Auditorium in May. Casting was recently completed for the Greek tragedy and rehearsals are due to get under | way soon. Bui ah: nalism teachers and newspaper representatives, there was a presentation of a special award to L. D. Hotchkiss, retired Ediior-in-Chicf of the Los Angeles Times. Hotchkiss received the award from John H. McCoy, director of the School of Journalism. The afternoon program featured the presentation of awards for the best individual accomplishments in two-year colleges. The best news story award went to Jerry Rankin of the San Bernardino Valley College. Honorable mention went to Vic Holes k of East Los Angeles College, and Lorelei Calcagno of Los Angeles Valley College. Sports Winner Best in the sports story department went to Mitch Chort-koff, also of East Los Angeles College. He was followed clo=eiy by Jerry Tune of Valley and Glenn White of Fullerton College. Kathy Reho of Fullerton College walked off with the honors in the best editorial division. Jerry Carroll of East Los Angeles and Martin Whiteman of El Camino were close behind. Photo Chosen The best news photo was submitted by Milt Fries of Valiev, with Tony Esparza of East Los Angeles and Roland Miller of El Camino receiving honorable mention. Awarded for the first time this year, Larry Bishop of Glendale was honored for the best community relations story. Love Story Is Topic of Noon Series Selections from George Meredith's romantic 19th century novel. "The Ordeal of Richard Feveral,” will be read today at 12:30 in 129 FH by Eva Betts, instructor in English and this week’s noon reader. A product of the author's personal problem, this Romeo and Juliet type of love story was first published in 1859. Realizing later that it was too personal and revealing. Meredith reissued it in a revised form in 1878. As an evaluation of this work, Mrs. Betts has said. “I think ‘The Ordeal of Richard Feveral' misses a little in being a good sentimental novel as its conclusion does not grow out of what has gone before. However, r do feel that it was one of Meredith's most interesting books.” Mrs. Betts, a relative newcomer to the faculty, is present-lv instructing classes in English ico?h and in 250b. Survey of Modem Fiction. di"-;ng her second semester at SC. She is a "rndunle of the University of Oklahoma where she also received ner mailer’s degree. Next week’s nocn reader, Assistant English Professor Ronald Freeman, will review selections from “Mr Vesscy, English Traveler in America.” Students See Legislature At CapitalSession Seven of SC's upperclassmen are in Saciamento today .studying the California legislature in action. More than 150 students from universities throughout California are attending the event, sponsored by the Citizenship Clearing House. Dr. Bernard Hyink, profesor of political science, said that the New York-formed organization has created the annual event for students of journalism and political science who are interested in politics. Formal Sessions The entiie group is attending two formal sessions of the stale legislature and the SC group is attending a series of separate workshop-type conferences with individual leaders of the Senate and Assembly. Three alumni of SC. who are leaders in the legislature, will join the Trojans in the workshop sessions. They are Senator Richard Richards and Asse nbly-men Jess Unruh and Joseph C. .Shell. They will meet with the SC delegation today. Tax Session The delegation attended a formal session yesterday concern-i ing the state tax controversy. I Today’s schedule includes a formal session of both the Senate | and Assembly and a meeting | with the Lieutenant Governor, 1 who is substituting for Governor Brown, called away on other I business. Last night the entire body of j students was addressed bv state ! leaders on “The Role of Political | Parties in California.” Tomorrow’ morning SC's delegation will meet with Dr. A. Lamount 1 Smith, Executive Officer of the State Board of Correction«. They ; will also meet with legislative lobbyists representing the savings and loan and trucking in-j terests in C^hforn'a. Stixtents Chosen Dr. Hyink said the students were chosen on the basis of in-! terest in nolitics and individual nursuits. The seven from SC are Helen Bushnell, James Bvlin. John Ellis, Stan Arkin. Diane Roberts, Sheila Palmer and I Christian Tulieh. 6/5 TROJANS GIVE BLOOD BUT FALL SHORT OF QUOTA With only 151 donations coining in Friday, SC blood drive fell more than 100 pints short of the 720 pint quota. A total of 015 Trojans gave their Wood during the four-day drive, a showing however, which was praised by Bill Steigerwalt, head of the Greater University Committee which sponsored the campaign. Bill Blackburn, head of "give blood’’ competition, rallied his Alpha Tau Omega brothers to win the trophy for the fraternity division with 33 donations. MAGIC 33 With an identical number of 33 pints, the Alpha ( hi Omegas won the sorority division. Although the Kappa Kappa Gamma house gave 34, the smaller number of girls in the AXO house gave them the trophy on the basis of greater percentage. The winner of the dormitory division was College Hall. The leading mens’ dormitory was Navy Hall.^ The Pharmacy fraternity of Alpha Iota Pi won the trophy for campus organizations. There is a question today whether SC or UCLA won the annual cross-town blood competition. I'CLA made 88cp of its quota while SC compiled 85%. On the basis of comparative enrollments, however, it would appear that Troy has won. DOUBLE ELIMINATION UCLA enrollment is just about twice that of SC and doubling SC's total donations would give the Trojans victory. (SC's total doubled equals 1230 pints, a wide margin over UCLA’s total of 1173.) Although final computations are not officia,1. yet, SC competition-leadcr Blackburn said Friday that "it appears we have won, pending final calculations.” One immediate advantage that the drive has is the assurance of a practically unlimited blood supply to any SC student that needs the life - giving plasma. Every pint donated on the campus goes into an SC blood bank account and may be drawn upon by any Trojan. Dr. Paul 0. Greeley, medical director at the health center, is in charge of the SC bank. Librarian s Collection of Writings Donated to SC The professional library of the ; late Althea Warren, Los Angeles j city librarian from 1933-47 and teacher at SC, has been donated to the School of Library Science by her sister, Mrs. Lee Borden Milbank. The collection is supplemented by significant lectures, notes and miscellaneous items written by Miss Warren, which constitute an important addition to SC's library said Miss Hazel Rea. act* ing SC librarian and Dr. Martha Boaz. dean of the library school. Miss Warren donated almost her entire life to library work. Following more than ten years in Chicago and San Diego, she was assistant L.A. city librarian for seven years and then took over in 1933. She was also president of the American Library Association and the California Library Association. Alan Widiss is still in the running for the Engineering School presidency today after the ASSC Elections Board of Protest officially declared him qualified to run for office in a special meeting Friday. Because of specially prepared evidence given by Engineering President John Koeller. Widiss escaped the Board’s disqualification as that meted out to former Engineering Candidate Peter Van Meter last week. The evidence given the board showed that Widiss was at the council meetings the required number of times, making him a prior member. A clause in the Engineering School’s constitution states that any president must have served on the Engineering Council for one semester before the election. It was this same clause in the constitution which disqualified Van Meter. Board Recommendation The voting board members present — Elections Commissioner Juanita Sakajian. Senator Mike Donahew and AWS President Kathy Niemeyer — also issued a recommendation as a part of their decision asking the Engineering Council to make necessary and immediate changes in their Constitution to prevent a situation like this from happening again. Instigated by President Scott Fitz Randolph, ex-officio member and Miss Sakajian. this recommendation was added on to the hoard’s decision in “the interest of better student government.” Added Stimulation The recommendation says that the added stimulation of a contested election is of benefit to the entire School of Engineering.” •‘The board casts no aspersions or expresses no favoritism in its decision but is considering the desirability for the Engineering School in having a record of three consecutive uncontested elections,” Fitz Randolph said in penning the board’s policy. With this recommendation the board apparently is hoping that the council will move before this week’s elections. This will enable Van Meter to be declared ro-qualified and continue a 'contested contest.” However, Engineering President Koeller said, “nothing will be done prior to the election. However, there is a strong possibility that action will be taken before the end of the year.” The entire case concerning Widiss’ eligibility was started last week when disqualified Van Meter issued a complaint stating that Widdiss had been expelled from the Engineering Council due to a lack of interest. Cnexcused Absence Van Meter said that Widiss did not attend any of the five meetings held this year and that three unexcused absences result in automatic expulsion. Koeller told the Board that Widiss had attended two out of three meetings (one was on the roll book» and that the council had only held three not five meetings. Miss Sakajian disagreed with this fact, but council roll books substantiated Koeller. He also submitted proof that Widiss wa« an active member of the council for two years, including a semester prior to his candidacy Police Check Parking I. D.'s Commuter students should b«* sure to have their Sc I.r>. cards handy when they drive into university parking lots for the rest of the semester, warns Campus Police Chief Victor Sergeant. When baseball games begin at the Coliseum it will be necessary to check I.D. cards in order to keep Dodger fans from appropriating student parking space. Model United Nations To Convene on Campus; 83 Western Universities Participating in Meet By Judy Ashkenazy Eleven months of preparations for the Model United Nations will be concluded in eight days when participants from 83 western colleges and universities | convene at SC on April 25 for : four days of conferring, debating and ruling on world problems. Since May, 1958, Secretary General George Young, and his assistant, Joel Fisher, have devoted themselves to organizing the different schools, formulating a calendar of events and coordinating meeting and living facilities. They operate on a $28 000 budget. MUN is structured around the Security Council, ECOSOC, five of the regular committees, the General Assembly and the International Court of Justice. Leaders of these committees and councils are recruited from SC. Judicial officers for the International Court of Justice are se-; lected from SC. UCLA and Loyola Law Schools. Those represent ine SC include William Pippin. chief iustice; Sid Adair, registrar; Ben McKesson and Bill Wirin, chief counsels to the court; Georfre Beachtold, John Bedrosian, Harvey Gerber, Ma-i son Kight, Laurence Klu^man. Gerald Raydon, Ernest Schag and Seojt Simon. OUputes Considered The ICJ considers only those international disputes w h i c h have not been considered bv the j actual ICJ at the Hague.
